Excelsior Correspondent

SAMBA, Oct 3: On one hand the Government makes tall claims for providing the better health care facilities to the people but on the other the medicare facilities are totally poor in Government institution in hilly and far flung areas and the authorities don’t bother to improve them.
The far-flung and backward village of Goran in district Samba is fittest example of the apathy of health Department authorities as the successive Governments always neglected the Samba district regarding medicare facilities.
The condition of the building of the Sub Centre of village Goran block Sumb is totally bad and the Sub Centre is in shambles for last many years, but the Health Department is in deep slumber and playing with the lives of people of the area. The Department has constructed the new building of Sub Centre Goran 25 years back but failed to make it functional till date. Now before the shifting of Sub Centre in the new building it has turned into ruins and the Sub Centre is functioning in a private room in the village. Health Department has totally failed to shift the Sub Centre in new building and the funds spent on the construction of the new building have gone waste.
People of the area who have shown lot of concern over the failure of the Government in shifting the Sub Centre to new building said this shows that the authorities at the helm of affairs are totally irresponsible and this way lakhs of rupees spent on the building have gone waste.
People said that the village Goran is 19 kilometers away from district headquarter Samba. They said that the building was constructed 25 years ago but after its construction the doctors and staff of the Health Department have not shifted there and the Sub Centre continues to be run in one private room of the village due to which the people of hilly areas faces many difficulties. They also said that dozens of villages fall under in village Goran and they depend on this Sub Centre. If someone falls sick he is forced to visit Primary Health Centre Sumb for treatment which is six kms away from Goran.
Des Raj a local resident said that the Health Department constructed the building of Sub Centre in village Goran 25 years ago but the Department has failed to shift the Sub Centre in new building. The Health Department misused the Government funds and failed to shift the Sub Centre in new building. The new building is totally in shambles now, he added.
Not only this no any doctor comes in the Sub Centre and the people are forced to visit PHC Sumb and private clinics for treatment.
He appealed Governor Satya Pal Malik to initiate an enquiry and order strict action against the officers who miss used the fund as the new sub centre building has been of no use to villagers.
